Ubud-dah add this to your bucket list.

Hello Pals,

I recently went to Ubud for a friends birthday and ‘u bud-dah believe I loved it!’ (sorry.) Ubud was a fantastic time away; fresh food, lovely people and so many sights around that you understand why people want to come and live here. It’s away from Kuta and the party-feel (do the Shaka m8) so although it’s touristy it’s not your typical Australian southern cross tattoo, bin-tang singlet walk around with buckets of alcohol touristy.

Read below on some tips for what to do with your time in Ubud.

Fitting into Queenstown.

Hi Pals, New Zealand is the third most beautiful country in the world according to a poll down in 2017 by Rough Guilds. Now, whether or not you think this is true, there is no denying that it’s unreal.

I’m lucky that airlines like Jetstar often have cheap flights to New Zealand, and when a recent sale came up for the long weekend to Queenstown, I couldn’t say no! I reached out to a buddy of mine and said I was coming over. 3 hours on a flight? Easy. Return flight via Auckland? Not as easy.

A.C.M.E

Melbourne is one of my favourite cities, I’m obviously biased because I also call it my home (for right now.) I’ve lived in Melbourne since 2010, and I love when people are in town so you’re are able to show them things you normally miss out on! Here’s what I recently did on a day out!

 

Picking Podcasts

Hi Pals,

I’ve recently started getting into Podcasts more and more. I do like Audiobooks – in fact, that’s why I have a monthly subscription to SCRIBD (think Netflix but for books. That link will get you two months reading free!)

I feel I can commit to 4-5 hours of a podcast, but not an Audiobook. I guess it’s the ability to focus in and out. Like how I can binge 6 hours of Brooklyn 99 on Netflix, but not commit to a 1-2-hour movie.

Here’s a list of podcasts that I recommend getting you through that next 45-minute doctors wait, while you’re waiting for a friend or the next trip you’re taking – whether it be a night bus or long layover at the airport.

Not all of them I liked, which I’ll elaborate on – and some I loved. Be aware, Sub Category is just the term I’ve put in to shorten “what I believe it’s all about a sub category” not what it might be.

Podcasts can be listened to on Apple Podcasts, Google Play and Spotify. All links (no affiliates) take you to their main website.

ROAD TRIP

Hi Pals, I’ve been frequenting Canberra for a while now seeing as a few of good friends live up there. I kind of want to move to Canberra – the people are friendly, coffee is good and there is a hella good all vegan cafe called ‘Sweet Bones‘ up there too. The last time I was there was for Nika’s birthday and Chola’s art show. We figured, we all had some spare time so why not make it a road trip back to Melbourne.
